The theme of this book is focused on "reinventing" one's career at some point after age 50.
This is motivated by 2 trends:
1.) People are living longer than generations ago when the retirement age of 65 was "set".
2.) Most people in the corporate world can no longer work until even age 65, in that most companies work under the view that older workers are not as valuable relative to their compensation.
As such, many people will find themselves in a position where the career they've focused on throughout their lives is no longer available to them and they hence need to "reinvent" their career.
I found it hit home in that I have a number of people I know who are in their 50s or 60s that have a lot of experience, knowledge, wisdom, and a strong work ethic, yet can no longer find work in the field where they excelled.
Walton gives many examples of anecdotal success stories to help the reader find examples to help them - positing that the best solution is to take control of one's one situation as an entrepreneur.
The book is short and easy to read. It is a good introduction.
I'm going 4 stars instead of 5 because of the high-level - and only highlights the big successes. Most people aren't going to hit is as a big success right off the bat, so the book is largely only helpful in concept to them. I think most people will need more guidance than is given in this book.
